Elizabeth Arden Ahoy

Elizabeth Arden Ahoy is one of two new polishes from their 2014 Summer Escape Collection. Ahoy comes in an adorable nautical themed box for all of you packaging fans!  The brush is a tad stubby but I love the wide curved bristles & it works very well.

Ahoy is a a muted coral neon unlike any others in my collection. A gorgeous shade for spring & summer! Shown here at three 3 thin coats, the formula is a bit streaky but applies nicely for this type of color & finish. Definitely a keeper!

Sation For Better Or Never & Impromptu Halloween Costumes

You can see a few more of Sation's new Glitters in this post. Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. This new Glitter collection retails for $7.

Sation For Better Or Never is fantastic! I would never have picked up this color on my own but I love it so much! It's a one coat wonder with a truly excellent formula. For Better Or Never is a coral base packed small holographic glitter & medium silver & blue glitter. Unique & gorgeous!
Sation For Better Or Never ended up being the perfect polish for my impromptu Halloween night with Ashley. We love Halloween & decided to dress up again even though there wasn't much going on since it was a Wednesday. We had lots of fun! Ashley went as a cat & she dressed me up as a creepy doll.
Stabby, stabby, stab
I love Ashley's leopard print pants!
This kid was tick or treating on a pony & look at those boots!

American Apparel Sheer Summerland Beach


I love American Apparel polishes! They recently released a new collection of Sheers & they are drop dead gorgeous! This just might be my new favorite collection ever. The sheer collection contains 6 buildable jelly polishes that are super pigmented & apply very easily. Some are a bit streaky on the first coat but all of them are lovely by 2 thick coats or 3 thin coats. These are really great for all sorts of nail art & the colors are beautiful. They dry a bit matte so I definitely recommend a top coat for that squishy jelly finish. These polishes can be ordered from the American Apparel website for $6.

Summerland Beach is the most opaque polish from this collection but definitely still a jelly. I don't have anything like it in my collection & I truly adore it! Another new favorite; this might even make it into the top #10. It looks fresh & clean & goes with everything!

American Apparel Sheer Manhattan Beach

I love American Apparel polishes! They recently released a new collection of Sheers & they are drop dead gorgeous! This just might be my new favorite collection ever. The sheer collection contains 6 buildable jelly polishes that are super pigmented & apply very easily. Some are a bit streaky on the first coat but all of them are lovely by 2 thick coats or 3 thin coats. These are really great for all sorts of nail art & the colors are beautiful. They dry a bit matte so I definitely recommend a top coat for that squishy jelly finish. These polishes can be ordered from the American Apparel website for $6. I'll be showing the whole collection over the next week or so.
American Apparel Manhattan Beach is a fantastic orange coral jelly shown here at 3 coats. So pretty!

Sation Overdressed Party & Violet Flare

Sation recently updated their brand & bottles & I have a few of their new polishes to show you. The bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. The formula on all the ones I've tried is excellent. Neither of these polishes are colors I would normally pick up on my own, but I'm so glad that I got the chance to try them. I really love them both!

Overdressed Party is a super bright, red-leaning coral jelly. I love jelly polishes ( I think they look very modern) but have very few in my collection. Amazing coverage in two very easily applied coats. This is a very fun polish that I know I'll be wearing again, especially this summer!
 
Violet Flare is a deep, rich fuschia jelly with microshimmer.  It's truly stunning. Once again superb coverage in just two coats. Here are some shots in full sun & in the shade & with my dog Wally! He has his own tag if you'd like to see more of his adorable face.
 
 
Next up I'll have my second Valentine's Day manicure of the year featuring these two pretty polishes. Thanks for reading!

L.A. Colors Intense Collection Part I

This is the scariest color I have ever worn! I know some of you are going to love this one but I was actually embarrassed to go out in public with this on my nails. All of my friends and family agree that this is NOT a color for me. I was pretty sure I wouldn't like it but my nails needed to be painted in a hurry so I could join my sister for dinner and this color needed to be swatched. AAAAGGGHHHHH! It was the first thing everyone noticed. Even one of Will's friends came over and immediately commented on it before even saying hello. I didn't get to take it off before I saw him the next day and this very sweet guy said, "April, you're still wearing it." with a vague look of horror.
This came in a set I picked up from Gordman's for $4. Four different colors with no names. I'll show you the rest soon. I'm not sure what to call this color, maybe SUPER BRIGHT neon coral with some shimmer.




Have any of you ladies ever tried a color that was just so not you it was scary?
